I get asked questions about accessories time and again. What should I put on bookshelves besides books? What goes on top of the coffee table? How should I dress my sideboard? Adding accessories to a room usually happens toward the end of a decorating project. It’s one of my favourite phases of a project. This is where I really get to tell a story about the homeowner.
Over the years, I have developed a list of go-to accessories. These items are staples in the design world; some clients even ask for them based upon layouts they’ve seen or pieces they have coveted in favourite stores. These staples never disappoint. They look great mixed in among our most personal treasures, while adding warmth and interest. Enjoy the list, and consider one of these items the next time you want to freshen up that corner table or bookshelf.
